And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green (G5515) grass.
And I looked, and behold a pale (G5515) horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green (G5515) grass was burnt up.
And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, (G5515) neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
The verses above all have one thing in common. It is the word “green”. The word is from the Greek “Chloros”, from which we have our word “chlorophyll”, which is the substance in plant life that facilitates photosynthesis, the converting of water and carbon dioxide into sugar and oxygen. I do not know why translators translated “chloros” to “green” in three verses, and “pale” in another. I believe the failure to see from the beginning of the book of Revelation, that the book is written in significations…signs, symbolic meanings and metaphors, etc., played into it, though I do not know. To anyone who can not see through signs and metaphors, a “green” horse is inconceivable. The word “chloros” is used for the pale green of new plant life, the yellow-green of new growth. Look at a thriving plant in Summer and you will see the “pale” green of the new growth. So, to the mind that is inflexible, a “chloros” horse must be a “pale” horse. But the truth is, there are no horses at all in Revelation 6. A horse is used, among other things, to depict a vehicle, a conveyance, upon which something is transported abroad. The fourth and final “conveyance” of Revelation 6 is the GREEN horse, it is the GREEN issues we hear so much about. Jesus once chided the Scribes and Pharisees who were always asking for a sign. Jesus told them they could read the sky and see what the weather would be, but could not discern the signs of their times. The “green” issue is a sign of our times. Every civil and religious authority in the many headed conglomerate that has arisen out of the sea of humanity, is now, or will shortly be, riding on this “horse”. A lot of human suffering will follow this power grab. For the objective is not to “save” the planet, It is to control the planet, and everything that lives and breathes on it. The same things were shown before in Daniel’s day, manifest in the life and dreams/visions of Nebuchadnezzar. It is noted, that Daniel stated that the understanding and interpretation of these things , were for their sakes to whom the understanding was given. Namely, Daniel, Hananiah, Azariah and Mishael. From the first dream, Nebuchadnezzar never understood the meaning. The vision was about the non-descript stone that brought the image down, and the clay in the feet. Inasmuch as it was shown Nebuchadnezzar that he was the head of gold, he presumes the vision to be about him. Hence the next thing he does, seeing the demise of the first image, is to build another image ALL of gold. He could not conceive of a world in which he was not the potentate, the spokesman for the heavens, and the most important, glorious, and imposing thing on the planet. In the first dream, clay enlightened by the stone destroys his image. In the second image, faith of three men walking with one “like unto the son of God” destroys his image. The third episode is like the first two. His mind is depicted as a great sprawling green tree that everything must lodge in and function in. It too, is hewed down in the dream, which is fulfilled when he looses his mind for a time. He never, at any time seemed to grasp, that the power and the kingdom are the Lord’s, and that , as the Lord proved to Nebuchadnezzar, the Lord choses from the basest of men, and sets them in authority:
“This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.”
The other three “horses” and their “colors” also teach you something. Bread is white, wine is red, tarnished silver is black. The picture is of an image, not unlike what Nebuchadnezzar saw. A religious/political entity composed of components of descending importance, and increasing numbers. It is the colors of a priesthood. Silver often in scripture depicts redemption. Tarnished, or corrupt silver, is black. Let the reader understand.
Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth eaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the laborers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, cries: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabbath. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stabilize your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draws nigh.
The great “green” horse of Revelation will also come down. Consider carefully, that the book of the bible ends with a great, rootless tree. It does not draw living water…it dispenses it. It’s leaves are for the healing of the nations. It’s leaves do not convert outer light into food and oxygen, they convert inner light. It does not bask in reflected light, it shines “as the stars of heaven”.
It too, is a signification. It is not a tree, it is a resurrected, glorified man, and all them raised and glorified with Him. This is also signified before, in Aaron’s resurrected almond rod. That rod was raised rootless, leaf, branch and flower, along with an entire crop of almonds…a generation raised with it. In that condition, it was placed in the ark of the testimonies of God. To do this, it passed between the show bread and the golden lamp stand. The lamp stand was made to emulate a fruiting almond, as you may read and find. Similarly, the manna in the golden pot placed in the ark, also passed between the lamp stand and show bread, which show bread too, merely stood until the true and greater things were fulfilled in the ark.
Christ in you, is the resurrection (as Aaron’s rod depicted) and the Life (as the manna in the golden pot depicted). The false horsemen of Revelation 6 are overcome by the White horseman and horsemen with Him, of Revelation 19. All are clothed with his righteousness, there is no descending order. All have the bread of His word in their mouths, springing forth from the abundance of their hearts. The miracles of the loaves and fishes is comprehended in the latter end of the events, when the baskets full are gathered in. These baskets of supply came from the formerly needy.
Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it proceed the issues (wellsprings) of life.
The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. It does not belong to the rider and riders of the green horse. They will learn this. The meek will inherit the earth, the wicked will be cut off from it. They will learn this too.
